EX7700 combined with powerline

Greetings to All! 

 

It might be a noob question, but I want to verfy this befor my purchchase.

The house I'm renting (will move in next week, and the provider will hook me up end of next week) has a very weird setup. The router must be placed in the basement but I would need to supply WIFI to the level of the living room and to the level of the bedrooms. So the question is: can I connect the extender to the router through POWERLINE (cabel from router to powerline adapter than again cabel from the next adapter to the extender) in case the WIFI signal is not reaching my upper level? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Re: EX7700 combined with powerline

Can you do that? Yes. Will it work great/ok? unsure. Each house is different and performs different with powerline. reason why is many things impact powerline performance including age of the wiring, arc fault circuits, gfci outlets, high draw appliances, electronics going bad/poorly made, or even cell phone chargers can impact it. Plus other things. 

So can you do it? yes. Will it work to your satisfaction? we don't know. You'd have to try it and see. Sorry, Wish I had a better answer for you!

Thanks. This would be a last chance in case everything else fails. 

Many thanks again for the confirmation.
